Hi guys,

I’ve have my current bike just over a year it’s a 1952 D1. I had quite a few in my youth but the last was in  1971. I live in Radcliffe Lancashire and love riding in the hills around my area. The bike is tidy but requires lots of work to bring it up to scratch.

Looking forward to getting out on a run with some of you when we can.

Hi and welcome Cliff,

As Stoo says, loads of info and bantam banter related topics here. I also have a D1 and live in Bolton, there's about 3 other D1's in our area. Out of Covid times we all meet up a few times a year at the lower barn, Rivington. we should be able to have a meet up later in the summer if we are out of lockdown.

Good look with your project, look forward to seeing some photo's.
